Red Rock

Red Rock is the northernmost village on the Coffs Coast, and popular with those enjoying nature and the outdoors. At 40 kilometres from Coffs Harbour, Red Rock is an easy half-hour drive from the city, or 10 minutes from Woolgoolga.

It features a children's playground, benches, shaded picnic tables, plenty of grassy areas and trees to laze under, an amenities block and a boat ramp. Red Rock is named after the stunning red rock formations at the mouth and headland of the estuary.

Australian National Goanna Pulling Championships


The offbeat, all Australian sport of Goanna Pulling dates back to the nineteenth century.

Contrary to the name, it's a test of strength between two people, whereby contestants get down on all fours and are linked by a leather belt over their heads, enabling them to pull backwards, tug of war style. Enter on the day for your chance to win cash prizes in the Men's and Ladies' Age and Weight Divisions.

The Goanna Pulling Championship includes many other events on the day including wood chop, men's, ladies' and children's novelty races, dog obedience trials, tug of war teams, market stalls, and food and drinks. Making a fun filled experience for the whole family.

Fun for the kids with a jumping castle, Old McDonald's Farm, Australian Reptile Show, bungee trampoline, giant ferris wheel, dodgem cars, and cup and saucer ride.
